A non-destructive testing (NDT) method for inspecting sintered welds was developed to ensure the structural integrity of the European Space Agency’s Euclid space telescope.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, developed an ultra-lightweight module specifically for the Stratobus project with Thales Alenia Space France (TAS-F), once again demonstrating its capacity to develop personalized modules to meet manufacturers’ unique needs.
The INSTN* EVOC training platform has been up and running since October. The platform’s innovative virtual-reality training environment makes it like no other facility in the world.
During the state visit of His Excellency Emmanuel Macron President of the French Republic, the Belgian research center imec and the French research institute CEA-Leti, two world-leading research and innovation hubs in nanotechnologies for industry, announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that lays the foundation of a strategic partnership in the domains of Artificial Intelligence and quantum computing, two key strategic value chains for European industry, to strengthen European strategic and economic sovereignty.
A micro-hydro turbine designed to be integrated into water distribution networks was developed at Leti, a CEA Tech institute. The turbine harvests energy from the flow of water to power sensors used to monitor the network.
Industrial robots were developed to replace human operators on repetitive or dangerous tasks. Cobots—or collaborative robots—are different. Human operators continue to use their unique know-how, while the robot works with them to make their work easier.
EU Horizon 2020 project REDFINCH is tackling the next generation of miniaturized portable optical sensors to detect gases and proteins in liquid. The sensors under development will initially target the petrochemical and dairy industries.
Research conducted under two EU projects has given rise to a new distributed energy management platform capable of coordinating the energy consumption of households at the scale of an entire neighborhood.
A power transformer with satisfactory thermal performance was produced using powder injection molding (PIM) and a printed-circuit-type industrial assembly. This advance will pave the way to smaller power supply components suitable for a variety of mobile devices.
Researchers at List, a CEA Tech institute, won first prize in the RAW competition for its smart positioning and routing software for reconfigurable architectures.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
